London was covered in “fog” at the beginning of the 20th Century, culminating in the Great Smog in 1952. The Clean Air Act was implemented in 1956, but the fatalities from the Great Smog are said to have reached 12,000. Below are 24 haunting black and white photos of London fog from between 1910’s to 1950’s.

That same foggy London that has inspired poets and artists throughout time to unleash their monstrous creations onto the city streets. From R.L. Stevenson’s Jekyll and Hyde to Tim Burton’s Vincent, the thick mist inspired wonder and fear to those who got to witness it first hand.
